Description

HALYARD* MICROCOOL* Breathable High Performance Surgical Gown

The HALYARD* MICROCOOL* Breathable High Performance Surgical Gown is the result of years of research to make MICROCOOL* more cool and protective than ever. We have a long heritage of innovation in medical supplies and devices.

Patented Microporous Fabric

  • Soft spunbound outer layer
  • Proprietary breathable fabric
  • SMS fabric inner liner layer

HALYARD* MICROCOOL* Gowns meet the AAMI Level 4 liquid barrier standard1 

The Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) developed the liquid barrier standard to assist healthcare personnel in the selection and use of surgical gowns, drapes and other protective apparel. MICROCOOL* Gowns are Level 4, the highest barrier protection rating available for gowns.

HALYARD* MICROCOOL* Breathable High Performance Surgical Gowns provide Level 4 liquid barrier in zones A, B, and C.2,3 For surgical gowns, the critical zones are, at a minimum, the front area of the gown from chest to knees (area A) and the sleeves from the cuff to above the elbow (area B). The standard requires that the entire front of a surgical gown (Areas A, B, and C) provide a liquid barrier of at least Level 1. The back of the gown (area D) may be non-protective.

100% Landfill free

HALYARD MICROCOOL* Gowns are produced in facilities dedicated to cleaner manufacturing and source reduction. Every month, over 6.5 million pounds of our manufacturing waste is diverted from landfills. And the facility which manufactures our MICROCOOL* fabric is 100% landfill-free.

Clean Incineration

HALYARD* MICROCOOL* Gowns are composed of over 90% Number 5 polypropylene, which incinerates very cleanly after use.3 (Compare that to reusable gowns, which require substantial amounts of water, energy, and harsh chemicals to decontaminate and clean according to industry standards for hospital laundry.4)

PFOA-free

In compliance with EPA recommendations, MICROCOOL* Gowns are PFOA-free.5

Environmental Leadership

Our sustainability standards have helped Halyard Health to be repeatedly recognized for environmental leadership by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index and the Newsweek Green Rankings of the world’s most environmentally-friendly companies.
